About us


Greyhound Pets of America/Greater Orlando is a 501c3 non-profit corporation founded in 1996 as a chapter of the National Greyhound Pets of America organization. Our purpose is to find homes for ex-racing Greyhounds and to educate the public on the suitability and availability of Greyhounds as pets.


The GPA office and adoption kennel are located in Longwood, Florida. Our programs depend on donations to accomplish our wonderful mission. All funds directly benefit the Greyhounds in our care and our organization is solely comprised of volunteers.


Due to the huge growth of GPA/GO, we reorganized in 2003 with a Board of Directors and Officers to handle the extensive responsibilities involved in running GPA/GO smoothly.


Since its incorporation, GPA/GO has had the opportunity to place a few thousand Greyhounds through our Adoption Kennel.


Our goal has always been to find a home for every single retired racing Greyhound that needs one and we never turn away a sick, injured, or senior Greyhound, so we need your help!

Thank you!
